Fundraising target: £150

Training included

No preparation is required because you’ll receive expert advice and help throughout the day.

Spectators welcome

Spectators, banners and signs are also welcome - ask your family and friends along to support your bravery. The more, the merrier!

Fancy dress is encouraged

It’s your challenge, and your chance to be whoever you want to be whilst scaling the heights - fancy dress is encouraged. Channel your inner super hero and be the Superman, Wonder Woman, Princess (Leia) or Mr Incredible you are!

About the Dee View Court Capital Appeal

To reach more people, we need to raise £3.9 million to extend our Sue Ryder Dee View Court neurological centre in Aberdeen, to build new specially adapted rooms and apartments, and give us the flexibility to care for a further 20 people.

It’s a big project, and one we cannot do alone. You can help us realise our vision, and give more people in your community the care and support they need and deserve.
